My husband and son don't
like salmon. They bought me a fresh fillet and decided they would
eat something else. I prepared my dinner before they wanted to eat
and gave them a taste. Both of them have decided they now like
salmon when it's prepared with your recipe. I thought it was
absolutely awesome better than some restaurants I've eaten in.
Thanks for sharing.
I was looking for an easy
way to blacken salmon.... this is great! It is easy... and very
clear as to what I need to do. Thanks!
First, it is great to be
able to get your recipe for blackened salmon. Had in restaurant and
now want to try it myself at home. Understandably, a cast iron
skillet would be best. However, can a regular stainless steel frying
pan be used? You got it right. I am not a chef. I will get a cast
iron frying pan if that is really the best. Thanks so much for the
WOW Yummy Yummy Yummy Rarely does my
husband tell me he likes a meal so much. Thanks!!
Did this recipe but smotherd on top
fresh asparagus, fresh time and garlic sprouts was the best salmon
I have ever had.
